So for the time being, there will be no season 2. T_T So that stupid hamster girl can get a sequel, but a cool show can't!

For now it's 2 ep and that director quote implies the episodes are part of season 2.
True, that might be the case as well.

Strike The Blood's season 2 is 8 ovas so they might do they same here.
I doubt that, they specifically said it would be "episodes 13 and 14" which implies it's part of the first season and not a new one. And Strike the Blood had 8 OVAs (which can technically be called 2nd season due to the amount) whereas Drifters is having only 2 new episodes.

Also the card at the end of the anime specifically said 2nd Season and I doubt 2 episodes can be considered a new season. I might be completely mistaken but MAL seems to agree with me as they're making a separate entry for the 2 new episodes.

I read the same news on ANN quite a while ago and the wording was quite different:
Director Kenichi Suzuki said in September that the sequel anime series would start with a release of episodes 13 and 14 on DVD and Blu-ray Disc.

You've got to be kidding me
I really hope that they are planning for a continuation after this 'sequel'
Man... what a betrayal.

Glad we're getting a sequel so soon, looking forward to it.

So no season 2 huh? I don't really mind as I was a bit disappointed in the story.

My city name is Banjarmasin XD

I was waiting for season 2, and I still hope it will happen. But I think a special is better than nothing for now xD

A bit surprised, since-so many people complained to me that "such good animes as Drifters never get a continuation."

Oct 20, 10:42 AM by RobertBobert

Well I thought it was pretty decent but this is better than nothing. :T

Ok, for a moment I thought that the second season would be only 2 episodes.
It's not bad to build up hype, specials are always welcome.

New character is voiced by Tomoaki Maeno:

At least we will have the specials this year, considering that ambigous "20xx" of the announcement.

Oct 20, 9:27 AM by Illyricus

Oh god please tell me there will be a real season 2 after that. The first one was so good !
